Wear plenty of sunscreen, sun makes the scars worse. Hope this helped :]. ...Read more

PictureWorth1000Word: This is not something easily discussed via text. A pic would help, but would just be the start of the process. You need to see a dermatologist. Maybe a primary care person first, but in any case, for something you've had for years you'll need a complete evaluation. Even some common sense recommendations like a cream or soap will probably not help as much as the eyes & brain of a dermatologist. ...Read more
